With a youthful theme connecting the pieces, Hindemith’s ‘Little chamber music’ is a product of his avant-garde twenties, laced with humour and piquant harmonies. After Berlioz’s soothing lullaby played to the Holy Family once they’ve reached safety in Egypt, Berio’s cautionary animal tales include a fox, chicken, fawn, mouse and two urban bruiser tom cats. Janáček described Mládi, composed when 70, as ‘a kind of memory of youth’ incorporating Moravian folksongs he’d known since childhood.
